Manzanita Lake (Zoom presentation)

Manzanita Lake is known worldwide as a superb fly-fishing still water destination. This fly-fishing jewel is located right inside the Northwest entrance to the Lassen Volcanic National Park.

The lake is gin clear, with deep bowls, lined with logs, manzanita patches, weed beds and drop offs – this lake has it all. What makes Manzanita a fly-fishing paradise is the wild rainbow and brown trout that inhabit its water. These fish are all wild; there is no stocking program in park waters. These fish are usually super spooky and selective, while at other times turn into eating machines.

Callibaetis, damsels and motor boat caddis fuel this lake. Not to mention the Carpenter Ant hatch that is truly spectacular. It’s a wonderful place to fish.
